Dua for Wudu – Wazu Ki Dua

In Islam, certain conditions apply before worship. Your body and clothes must be clean. You must perform ablution (wazu) and recite the dua for ablution (wazu ki dua). Wazu is a must before every prayer, reciting the Holy Quran, and every kind of worship.

Dua before wudu and dua for after wudu (wazu ki dua).

This article discusses the supplications (duas) before and after Wudu in Arabic, Urdu, and English. Importance of Wudu and its benefits according to Sunnah.

Importance of Wudu

Wudu is compulsory before Namaz and every kind of worship. Before moving forward we decide to acknowledge you about the importance of wudu through hadith.

Ibn e Umar narrated: the Prophet (SAW) said that Salat (namaz) will not be accepted without ablution nor charity from haram. (Tirmizi Hadith# 1)

With this hadith, you can easily understand the importance of wazu. 

Wazu se pehlay ki Dua – Dua Before Wudu

We know from ahadith that our Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) used to recite “ Bismillah” before performing ablution. Therefore, we should also recite before performing ablution:

بِسۡمِ اللّٰہِ



Urdu Translation:

شروع کرتا ہوں اللہ تعا لٰی کے نام سے  

English Translation:

                                    In the name of Allah

Related Hadith

Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Messenger of Allah(SAW) said: The prayer of a person who does not perform ablution (wazu) is not valid, and the ablution of a person who does not mention the name of Allah ( in the beginning) is not valid. (Sunan Abu dawud Hadith # 101)

It seems a  really strict Hadith therefore, the Muslim scholars agree at one point that if someone performs ablution with bismillah, he will get a lot of rewards (swab). And if someone forgets to recite Bismillah before wazu, still his ablution (wazu) will be performed.

Dua After Wudu (Wazu ki dua)

 In Ahadith we find two duas after Wazu. The first and most famous is this; 

                   اَشْھَدُ اَنْ لَّآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللّٰہُ وَحْدَہٗ لَاشَرِیْکَ لَہٗ وَاَشْھَدُ اَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا  ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَبْدُہٗ وَرَسُوْلُہٗ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ


Ash-hadu an laa illaha illalahu wahdahu la sharika lahu wa Ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasolu’ Allahuma-jalni minat-tawwa bina waj-alni minal mutatahireen

Urdu Translation

میں شہادت دیتا ہوں کہ اللہ کے سوا کوئی (سچا) معبود نہیں، وہ اکیلا ہے، اس کا کوئی شریک نہیں اور میں گواہی دیتا ہوں کہ محمد (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) اس کے بندے اور اس کے رسول ہیں۔ اے اللہ! مجھے توبہ کرنے والوں اور پاک رہنے والوں میں سے بنا دے

English Translation

I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, He is alone, He has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad (SAW) is His slave and His Messenger. O Allah make me among the repentant, and make me among those who purify themselves.

Related Hadith

Umer bin Al-khitab narrated that:

                                                   Allah’s Messenger said: Whoever performs Wudu, making Wudu well, then says:

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ

Then eight gates of Paradise are opened for him, that may enter by whichever of them wishes.

(Sunan Tirmizi hadith#55 Status: Sahih)

Another Dua After Wazu

Here is the second dua after Wazu. 

سُبْحٰنَکَ اللّٰھُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِکَ، اَشْھَدُ اَنْ لَّآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّآ اَنْتَ، اَسْتَغْفِرُکَ وَاَتُوْبُ اِلَیْکَ

السنن الکبرٰی للنسائی:25/6، حدیث:9909


Subhana kullahumma wa bihamdika Ash-hadu an la illaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubo ilaik

Urdu Translation

پاک ہے تو اے اللہ! اپنی تعریفوں کے ساتھ، میں شہادت دیتا ہوں کہ تیرے سوا کوئی معبود نہیں، میں تجھ سے معافی مانگتا ہوں اور تیرے حضور توبہ کرتا ہوں 

English Translation

Glory be to Allah, I bear witness with my praises that there is no God but you, I seek Your forgiveness and I repent before You.

Benefits of Wazu

There are numerous benefits of wazu. It make us able to stand in front of our lord the Allah Almighty. It also purifies us from sins. There is another hadith that shows the benefits of Wazu.

In another Hadith Abu Huraira narrated that: Allah’s Messenger said: When a Muslim, or believer, performs wudu, washing his face, every evil that he looked at with his eyes leaves with the water, or with the last drop of water, or an expression similar to that- and when he washes his hands, every evil he did with his hands leaves with the water-or with the last drop of water-until he becomes free of sin.

Wazu and its before and after duas purifies us from sins and it can lead us to heaven.
